We're a loving community of Bible-believing Christians from across the political and theological spectrum. Whatever your political affiliation, or theological background, we invite you to journey with us as we seek to understand more fully God's truth, as it's written in Scripture.
We're a welcoming church with an open communion table. All are welcomed to worship with us, no matter who you are or where you come from.
When you enter our sanctuary, your eyes and ears will be opened, and you will gain wisdom into God, His Word, and the life of His church. When you leave, you'll be inspired to take action and to show the love of Christ to your neighbor and the world through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Faith is a journey that lasts a lifetime. It isn't easy, and we welcome you to share your burdens, sorrows, joys, and praises with us and be among the saints of this church who've made a lasting impact on the lives of weary travelers who pass along their merry way through their pain, struggles, and heartaches as they seek shelter from their time of storm.
